The Largest Rebates on Trucks and SUVs Right Now
With winter just ahead, thoughts turn to snow, slush and mud.
When it comes to dealing with the road hazards of the cold and wet, few vehicles deal with Mother Nature as well as trucks and SUVs.
Last year many Americans suffered one of the worst winters on record, giving Edmunds.com more reason than ever to focus on these vehicles in their recent September Deals of the Month.
Taking a look at the incentives automakers are offering, some of the best deals are on the biggest vehicles.
Dodge is putting $4,500 worth of cash on the hood of the 2011 Dakota pickup while Nissan is nearly matching that number with $4,250 on the 2011 Titan.
If you want financing instead of cash, 0% APR deals are available on the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado and Suzuki Equator.
Similar 0% deals are available on the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2011 Jeep Wrangler and 2011 Mazda CX-7.
If you are looking for a luxury brand, the 2011 Acura RDX can be had on a "zero down" lease starting at $430 per month.
Mercedes-Benz is even in the game, starting off it’s 2012 GLK model with a 1.9% financing deal.
If you're shopping for a new truck or SUV, you're in luck. They're not selling as well as manufacturers hoped and as we close the year, the deals should get even better.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
